  7. Nepal’s Everest base camp...

Nepal’s Everest base camp is ranked as the fourth finest trek in the world by Lonely Planet.

The 4th-best trek in the world, according to Lonely Planet, the world’s largest publisher of travel guides, is the Everest base camp trek, which winds through Sherpa villages, glaciers, and the summit of Mount Everest.

The guidebook “The 10 best treks in the world,” which was updated in June 2020, claims that the Everest base camptrek  has grown in popularity since everyone wants to see the world’s highest mountain.

The guidebook stated, “This 2- to 3 week trek, which reaches a height of 5,545m (18,193ft) at Kala Pattar, is extremely popular, thanks to its spectacular scenery but also romanticism; successful trekkers are able to proudly say they’ve stood at the base of the world’s highest mountain.”

The trail, which is frequented by Sherpa people from the Solu Khumbu, winds through charming little mountain settlements on its way to the well-known campground.

“Until you get used to the altitude, the heights attained on this walk are practically dizzying, and there are ups and downs to the constant cutting across valleys. The busiest trekking season is here, so be prepared.

The majority of the journey passes through the Sagarmatha National Park, which is home to numerous amazing varieties of iridescent pheasant as well as musk deer, snow leopards, Himalayan tahr, black bears, and other UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Sagarmatha is the Nepalese name for Everest.

The Everest base camp journey is ranked among the top ten treks in the world. It follows the GR20 track, which passes through Corsica, France, diagonally from north to south; the Inca track in Peru; and Pays Dogon in Mali, one of the most beautiful places in Africa.

The Haute Route in France and Switzerland, the Narrows in the United States, the Indian Himalayas in India, the Routeburn Track in New Zealand, the Overland Track in Australia, and the Baltoro Glacier & K2 in Pakistan are some of the other top treks.

According to the travel guidebook, these ten traditional treks are some of the best on the world; each one calls for strong breathing, well-defined legs, and a good deal of planning. A lifetime experience, however, is the prize.

Lonely Planet claims that since the 1920s, adventurous men and women have been enthralled by Mount Everest. Legends like George Mallory, Sir Edmund Hillary, and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa made the mountain famous via their adventures; hundreds more have since followed, giving enormous sacrifices, many of which include their lives, in their own ascents.

However, the journey to Everest base camp has now become attainable for individuals from all backgrounds who wish to see the tallest peak in the world.
